In contrast to blacks, nonblack minority professionals

are distributed nearly equitably in the Department,

The

average salary of nonblack minority males and females in

the National Office and of females in the field is as large

as that for all professionals.

Nonblack minority male

professionals in the field are in slightly lower positions

than all male professionals there as indicated by the 4

percent salary difference between these groups of employees.

It should be noted that nonblack minority professionals in

the field comprise three-quarters of all nonblack minority

professionals in the Department.

(Tables 2, ll, and 20,

pp. 252, 258, and 261).

Underutilization in administrations and regions

The use indices for each administration show that only

LMSA is even half-way toward achieving parity for nonblack

minorities.

The overall use index for the Department is

a very low . 36.

(Chart 8, p. 33 ).

12/These low use indi ces result, in part, from measuring the representation of the nonblack minorities in each region against the National minimum standard of 8 percent. It might be unrealistic to require regions in which nonblack minorities constitute much less than 8 percent of the local population to achieve this standard. See the "Goals and Timetables" section for a more complete discussion.
